Motorcycle racing always looks (and probably is), really dangerous, it’s great to watch.

That IS exactly why - F1 is soooo boring - other forms of motor-sport ARE more exciting...

Got to agree on that Steve. Been to the TT a few times and to watch the sidecars going through Ramsey - the guys in the cars are mental.

It takes a certain grade of loony to go zooming through a forest at a high speed. It takes a way crazier one to sit in the passenger seat and read out notes. Ditto the 3W racing.

I always thought the same of the REME (Engineers supporting the troops) who worked under fire and in jobs like mine clearance, UXB and other tasks. Loonies the lot of them, bless them.

Through my time at work, I’ve been lucky enough to ride some UK tracks with a few top racers.
These were mainly closed track days, training sessions and new bike launches.

No matter how fast you are, or think you are, these guys are just a different class.
They have huge levels of skill and technical understanding.
